The kings of the earth committed adultery with the great prostitute who seats on many waters and the world was intoxicated because of it. In the desert, a woman was sitting on the beast with 7 heads and 10 horns covered with blasphemous names. The woman was dressed in purple and precious stones with a golden cup in her hands filled with the abomination of her adulteries. The title on her forehead was “Mystery of Babylon, mother of prostitutes, & abomination of the earth”, and she was drunk with the blood of the saints and those who bore testimony of Jesus. The beast once existed, but is no longer, but will return from the Abyss to his own destruction (so he is currently in prison by God). The beast has 7 heads that represents the 7 kings or 7 hills on which the woman sits. Five have fallen (Assyrians, Babylon, Medes, Persia, Greek), one is ruling now (Rome), and the last is yet to come (most likely North Korea – Asian from the East). The beast itself in the Abyss is the eight king who belongs to the seven, but will be destroyed. The 10 horns are kings without kingdoms, but will receive authority for an hour as kings with the beast. Their sole purpose is to consolidate power and authority for the beast and make war against Jesus, but they will all be defeated by Jesus and the saints. The water on which the prostitute sits are humans of the earth, and the beast with the ten horns will hate and ruin her. They will eat her flesh and burn burn her. God allowed the beast to rule until his time is up and the woman is the great city (Babylon) that rules over the kings of the earth.
An angel with authority came down from heaven and declared that Babylon has fallen to become the home of demons and all nations got drunk from her adulteries. Kings committed adultery with her (to stay in power and be relevant) and merchants of the earth got rich from her luxuries (corporation that made nation poor and hungry). The saints are to reject her so as to avoid her destruction and the kings that were once with her will now mock her. The corporations of the earth will mourn because their goods and services will become meaningless for sale and curse her. So will the sailors and sea captain, but will praise God for avenging the blood of the prophets, apostles, and saints. An angel throw a millstone into the sea and Babylon with all her glory disappears forever.
